Livio Felluga



Created in 1989, this wine is named after the Sossò stream, which runs at the foot of the hill where the grapes grow. Made with carefully selected Merlot and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grapes from the oldest vines at Rosazzo, Sossò is the result of skilful vinification and barrique maturation that lasts for 18 months. A supremely complex, well-structured wine, it stands out for its elegantly ripe, sweet, fruity tannins.

Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and the fruit was then crushed. Fermentation was carried out with maceration on the skins at controlled temperatures, in stainless steel containers. The juice was pumped over the cap frequently for about three weeks, in order to extract colour and aroma compounds from the skins. Pressing was carried out after fermentation.
Ageing: The Merlot and Refosco are blended and racked into barriques, where the wine matures for about 18 months. Bottling took place in June 2002. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of 12 months.

Nose: broad, elegant and very complex, with sweet notes of cherry and wild berries, mingling with intense notes of spice;
